    Gwyneth Paltrow and her Coldplay rocker husband Chris Martin have just spent $14 million on a seaside escape in Malibu.

    First reported by The Real Estalker, Paltrow and Martin purchased ‘The Garwood Residence,’ designed by world-renowned architect, John Lautner. This secluded and gated Malibu estate in the heart of the celebrity-infested Point Dume area is inspired by the award winning luxury brand, Aman Resorts.
    Inside the four bedroom post-and-beam estate, Gwyneth and Chris’s new home has heated sandstone floors, a Chef’s Kitchen, and a unique floor plan encompassing both indoor and outdoor living space.
    The estate’s grounds offer ocean views, landscaped gardens, a pebble stone pool, tennis court, gym and yoga studio. It is set on Malibu’s most coveted beach, Little Dume, which offers a protected backyard anchorage for a yacht, should they decide to scoop one up in the future.

    The famous (and incredibly rich) duo own a massive estate in London, a place in New York City and in 2012, they spent about $10 million for an equestrian estate in Los Angeles.

    After enduring rumors for the past six months that Vanity Fair magazine was expected to publish a sensational and damaging ‘takedown’ piece about the actress, she undoubtedly needs a place to escape from the madness of life in the public eye – and this seaside escape is just the place.

    Inside sources say they’ve already had design firm Windsor Smith into the home to ‘do it over’ and they’ve moved in.

        17,000 square feet, 5 separate structures, water park, furnished



        Celine Dion‘s career is larger than life, and so is her real estate portfolio. The international superstar has just listed the crown jewel of her real estate holdings – a 5.5 acre, 17,000 square foot estate with water park – for $72 million!

        In 2005, Dion and her husband/manager René Angélil paid $12,525,000 for the home at 215 S. Beach Road. They proceeded to tear down a perfectly nice 6 bedroom, 6 bathroom, 8,579 square foot home to build this incredible Bahamian-inspired estate, which was completed in 2010.

        Located in the exclusive Floridian inlet of Jupiter Island and sitting right on the bank of the Atlantic Ocean, the property is comprised of the main residence and 5 individual pavilions including a double 4 bedroom guest house (for a total of 8 bedrooms); a tennis house with simulated golf range leading to the tennis court; a pool house with built-in grill and separate kitchen; and a cozy beach house with second floor sleeping loft and massage room. There are three separate pools on the property, one at the rear by the ocean, and two connecting pools at the front with an insane water park.

        The main residence is an open-concept that takes full advantage of the ocean views. The main level features a formal living room, a large kitchen, family room and dining room, a ground floor bedroom suite with huge walk-in closet, bathroom and screened-in porch, a media room and a separate guest wing.

        The second floor features two children’s bedrooms with their own ensuite bathrooms, children’s den and a spectacular master bedroom. The master suite has a wrap-around terrace overlooking the ocean and two separate decks, one with outdoor fireplace, the other with hot tub. As expected in a diva’s home, Dion’s house has a fabulous dressing room with tons of built-ins, a gorgeous ensuite bathroom and every woman’s dream: an enormous walk-in closet with separate fully-automated clothes and shoe racks.

        Other  features include a 7,000 square foot fully-finished basement, pool house, staff quarters and elevator.

        For $72 million, Dion is offering the home fully furnished.
